A Reimagined Design, Inside and Out
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is powerful to use and beautiful to behold. The slim and lightweight metal and glass design makes a bold statement, while the lightning-fast Samsung Exynos®
7420 Octa-core 64-bit processor delivers the most power and speed we’ve ever put in a smartphone.
Samsung put the imagination that makes their HDTVs amazing into the palm of your hand. The 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED®
display shows everything brighter, clearer and more captivating on screen, and dynamically adjusts the display to adapt to different light conditions.
Our Best Smartphone Camera
The Galaxy S6 powers your selfies with a 5MP front-facing camera and a wide-angle lens, allowing you to capture more of the background and all of your friends. And if you double tap the home key, it quick launches from any screen. The ultra-responsive 16MP rear-facing camera with built-in Optical Image Stabilization and Auto real-time HDR will help you take great shots anywhere, every time.

Fast Charging and Power Saving
